Oh, and not to be a total nudge, but poker is mostly mathematical, and not very mystical at all. You play when the odds favor you, and you don't play when they don't. (I'm talking about seven-card stud. Texas Hold'em follows some of the principles of poker, but adds a crazy bingo-like element that makes any poker knowledge you may have essentially worthless, which is why we all don't like it.)

My favorite song about gamblers is Dylan's Rambling Gambling Willy (don't know the exact title). Willy never loses, which is of course the best kind of gambler to be. :)
